Until I could lose 5 kg in a week, I thought it was impossible. I considered such a slogan to be just an advertising company that aims to buy diet pills, or a booklet, which describes the magic ways of dropping excess weight.
My weight over the winter has increased. This was seen by me, my husband, and things in my wardrobe spoke about this, which I had difficulty fitting into.
I have already begun to think about going on a diet and start intensive exercise in order to bring myself back to normal.
These plans remained plans, but I still managed to lose weight.
The story of my accidental weight loss
A few weeks ago, I stayed with my mother and caught a cold. The first few days I felt quite normal, but very soon the temperature began to rise rapidly to 39 degrees and I had to sit on the antipyretic.
With the temperature, I absolutely did not want to eat. All I wanted was a lot of green tea, tea from currant twigs and raspberries.
Mom did not lag behind me and made me eat something, so I had to eat, but the portions were very small compared to the previous ones (before the illness).
When it became a little easier for me, we went to visit my grandmother, whom I hadn’t seen for a long time, because we now live in different cities.
Away, my son picked up a viral sore throat, which his nephew only had had. The next morning, the child’s temperature was too high. I was again not to eat.
In general, we had a temperature for a week. All this time I could not eat normally (and this, in my understanding, 4-5 times in large portions), and my weight literally melted before my eyes.
After a week of malnutrition and drinking lots of tea, I had to buy new pants, as those in which I came to visit my mother flew off from me.
When I arrived home, I was very surprised by my husband with my new figure. I myself am still very pleased.
I had to analyze the changes
In order not to gain the same kilograms again, I had to thoroughly think about how my regime changed while visiting my mother in order to understand the reasons for losing weight.
This is what I understood:
1. I poured out. I went to bed with my mother earlier (about 9 o’clock in the evening), and woke up later than usual. The morning was now not a nightmare for a half asleep creature, but a good start to a new day. And lack of sleep, as you know, is one of the causes of excess weight.
2. Portions of food decreased significantly. Because of the high temperature, at first my and then my son, I reduced the rations of food almost three times. Moreover, I ate everything indiscriminately (not counting the sweet), but I could get much less food.
3. Instead of eating it is better to drink green tea. This rule will always accompany me now. During the day I drink several liters of green tea, tea from raspberry and currant twigs, black tea, water, fresh apple compote.
4. Reduce the amount of sugar. I am a terrible sweet tooth, but during the illness I was sick of sweet, so I had to give it up. Now I have lost the habit of it, that 1-2 candies a day are enough for me.
five. The car stayed at home with my husband, and I I had to get used to my mother at a party to walk. At first, going to the grocery store seemed to me rather difficult, but after a while I even wanted to take a walk.
6. Reduced snacks between meals. When you stand in your kitchen, you start to chew something all the time. During the time I stayed with my mother, I practically did not cook (my mother did not allow me to go to her kitchen). Snacks have disappeared by themselves.
These are the reasons for losing weight, I brought for myself. Perhaps these tips will help you find your sins, which only add extra pounds to you.
Now I know that you can lose weight very easily. It remains, which is important, to keep my weight stable, which suits me now.
